Watercress Arame Salad with Sweet & Sour Dressing

May 15, 2013

Watercress Arame Salad with Sweet & Sour Dressing

This wonderfully refreshing salad is enhanced by the distinctive colour and taste of arame.

Serves 3-4


  • 10g Clearspring Arame, rinsed and soaked for 10 minutes
  • 1 bunch or pack of watercress, washed and cut into 5cm lengths
  • 1 chicory, washed and cut lengthwise into 2cm strips
  • 4-5 radishes, washed and finely cut in rounds
  • 1 carrot, washed and cut thinly into very fine strips or grated

For Dressing


  1. Drain the arame and place in a cooking pot with fresh water, covering 1/3 of its volume. Bring to the boil and simmer until the water is almost gone (about 10-15 minutes). Season with 1 tbsp of shoyu or tamari soya sauce and cook for a further 1-2 minutes. Leave the arame to completely cool.
  2. Combine salad vegetables in a large serving bowl. Add the cooled arame.
  3. Combine the dressing ingredients to taste. Serve in a separate dish.
